The Compassionate Care Bereavement Program

A program that consists of a variety of Bereavement Support Services and Events that our Hospice Society provides to aide in ones overall bereavement and mental health journey, prior to or following, the death of their loved one.

The program includes both structured and unstructured group or individual bereavement supports sessions, memorial events, bereavement initiatives, holiday support, companionship, art therapy, nature therapy, group activities, death cafes, and grief education.

There are three needs of a griever: to find the words for the loss, to say the words aloud, and to know that the words have been heard.

Memorial Events


On August 21, 2022 CCHS had the pleasure of hosting a Butterfly Release Ceremony in partnership with the Good Samaritan Society for our Hospice families.


Families whom have had a loved one venture through our Hospice since opening in 2019 were invited to come release a butterfly in memory of their lost family member. It was a beautiful tribute with soft music playing in the background and a family picnic.

Many thanks to Tim Hortons RMH for providing refreshments, to Gerry and Jo Bradshaw for sharing their musical talent with us, and to Rocky Support Services for the use of their tents.
